The Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly held an International Teleconference dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Meeting on the Elbe. It is intended to recall the victory of the allies in the Second World War and draw the public attention to the preservation of historical memory.
The meeting was attended by historians, journalists and scientists, public and political figures from Russia, the United States, France, Germany, India, China, the former republics of the Soviet Union and other countries. They talked about the lessons of the Second World War, the significance of the “Meeting on the Elbe” after 75 years, and the opposition to attempts to justify Nazism.
“Of course, I would like to welcome the understanding that for all of us – for Russians, for Americans, for all the people of our planet, for whom the lesson of the Second World war is instructive and thorough, to take all necessary measures to ensure such tragedies do not continue in the future, and the horrors of Nazism will not be repeated on any piece of land in the future”, - said Alexey Kondratev, representative of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.
New ideas for saving the planet from wars, climate and other threats were presented at the online conference.
